  1. Red is undrinkable unless you mask it deep within strong mixers.

    Black on the rocks was my normal drink when hitting the underground rock clubs in L.A. You just can’t go wrong with this.

    Gold seems best when paired with a rich dessert.

    I look forward to trying Green and Blue.

    • D Kennedy says

      Come on now…the red is certainly drinkable…’s just that after you’ve tried the Black, there’s no going back. For my taste, the Black is the ultimate….wait, wait, I can’t afford anything higher but can’t imagine that they are much superior to the Black…..I would like to hear from someone who has compared Black with Blue…

      • D Kennedy says

        BTW, I purchased on-board a bottle of Double Black but haven’t opened it. I’m secretly fearing I may not like it as much as [ordinary] Black. Has anyone an opinion here. I don’t see much traffic on what to expect with the Double.

        • If you like your Scotch more smoky, than you’ll like Double Black. You can taste that it’s really their Black, only they’ll aged it in charred barrels to bring more of a peaty smoke flavor. I like it. I quickly picked up a second barrel because I don’t see widely available. I alternate between that and their Black. Some days, you want something a little more flavor and complexity.

      • Black is good, great for your everyday go-to Scotch, but far from “The ultimate.” Blue is far superior than Black, but also far more expensive. However if it doesn’t break the bank, get a bottle of Blue for those special occasions. On those times, my drinking friend and I would comment on how smooth Blue is, “As if you were drinking water.”

  2. P La Cangri says

    Johnnie Walker Blue Label King George V and Johnnie Walker Blue Label are my favorite. I enjoy Green with a great cigar and Johnnie Walker Swing is amazing.

  3. Alan Crookston says

    You’ll do well to find a Scotsman that will go anywhere near Johnny Walker ..

  4. So good! I love the Red Label Whisky and Blue Label.

  5. Every few months I go to the best liquor store I know to buy half a dozen bottles of Scotch I haven’t had; both blends and single malts. I’ve been doing this for about 5 years. I haven’t found anything I like more than Johnny Walker Black. And there are a lot of very good Scotches out there with little known names.

  6. JW red is a great everyday scotch – my favorite – One part JW, One part water, One part 7up, mmmmm

  7. I like gold label

  8. Gold and green are no longer produced by Johnny Walker. Also, black label is the most counterfeited spirit world wide.
